I have a strong interest in other nations and cultures-- both past and present.  I have friends from all over the world, and I would love to make more international acquaintances here on Chess.com. Being the grandson of a Lithuanian immigrant, and the great, great grandson of English and Danish immigrants, I am especially interested in learning more about the cultures in those countries.

I am also into history (especially military history), and I am an active outdoorsman.  I would enjoy talking with anyone over either of these topics.

As for my username, haha, Sometimes I guess that there are things that I would rather be doing.  But come that time of year when there's nothing I can enjoy doing outside, if I'm not busy with unwanted business, I'll be improving my game.
